SAMSUNG SYNCMASTER 2233SW INTRODUCTION
The one thing that has been plaguing the monitor industry as of late is the lack of 1920 wide resolution support on anything less than a 24 inch for most models. Sure there are some exceptions, but 1920 horizontal resolution support on a smaller LCD is not as common as one might think. Today I will be reviewing a simple 21.5" monitor from Samsung that does support full 1920x1080 resolution. This features allows you to have more desktop real estate for working, allows you to watch full HD 1080p video, has a dynamic contrast ratio of 15000:1 and all for under US$200.
Sure it isn't the cheapest option out there, but as most consumers say, you get what you pay for lately. Samsung's quality in my office has yielded no failures whatsoever in the past 8 years of reviewing their products. Why get a cheap brand when you are rolling the dice to see if it will only last a year before blowing a backlight, dropping pixels or breaking due to poor workmanship.
Will the SyncMaster 2233SW follow Samsung's current quality trend or will things have changed since the market has taken a down turn lately. Read on to find out.
What can TFT LCD Technology do for me?
Below is just a small list of what TFT LCD technology can do for your small business or home environment.
1.) Radiation - TFT LCD technology virtually eliminates radiation which is emitted from normal CRT monitor and can promote a healthier computing environment for your children at home and/or your work environment.
2.) Low Power Consumption - LCD monitors have a power consumption of about half of the equivalent CRT monitors.
3.) Colour - Colours on LCD's are much more vibrant that CRT monitors.
4.) Physical Size - One of the main advantages is the size difference. LCD monitors cover about 30% of the desk area than a standard CRT.
5.) Viewable Area - Now here is the kicker, if you buy a 17" CRT monitor, it's safe to say that you will have an actual viewing area of about ~16". Now, when a TFT LCD is said to be 17", the viewable area IS 17", which is a far more honest approach to marketing.
